....Just sitting here contemplating the cold (for B.C.) weather and how it's frustrating my shooting time .... Had this idea to build an outhouse sized 'shed' to sit in and place targets out in the yard.....Insulate the thing to death with a small ceramic or propane heater, and a small port to shoot from....A nice chair & bench and wired for a coffee percolator (I use a vintage electric one).....Maybe even a window or two, (used thermopane).....Anyone had any experience with something of this sort? Maybe 4ft square ? (any larger and my family would make me live in it, lol)

It sounds like you're describing an ice fishing shelter.

Amazon.ca has all kinds of them (some insulated) as does Canadian Tire.

sounds like a great idea. but sounds a bit funny because when you have to go to the bathroom you;ll be running FROM the out house into the HOUSE. go for it if I had a yard I'd probly do something similar.

In rural Ontario every single farmhouse driveway has one of these near the road. Kids use them to wait for the school bus in the morning.

It's exactly what you are looking for and Google should bring up hundreds' if not thousands of images to give you ideas.

And if you really hate going out in the cold, add a clothesline running out to your target area from a trap door in the shed and you never have to leave your comfy little den, even to reset targets. If you're really feeling lazy, you could even put a motor on the pulley and have an automated target retrieval line. hmmm... Im liking the sound of this more and more..

...I'd be close enough to power to use a ceramic heater, which also means I could use an electric drill/pulley for targets ..... A spring project ! ....AND, it'll be cool in the summer (when ice fishing shacks float away, lol) .....Thanks for the positive reactions, I thought maybe I was WAY outside the box on this one ....................Thumper

...Just checked the price of ice huts at CT ..... I could buy a premium German airgun for the same cost ! ....No sir, it's scrap and 'goodwill' materials for me ......If I bought such a thing at Canton Tire, I really would have to live in it ! lol
